Kinesio Tape: Not just for superstar athletes!
I love using the tape with my patients. Ever since I introduced Kinesio Taping at The Back Care Center of Dumont, NJ in January of this year, I’ve been seeing excellent results. All sorts of conditions have been getting better faster than ever since we added this to the practice.
It’s great to take something that works for so many elite athletes and use it to help my patients get out of pain and hold their adjustments longer.
Kinesio Taping was developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase in 1979 and is being used by the world’s top professional athletes such as Serena Williams, Lance Armstrong and David Beckham. College teams, like the University of Connecticut men’s basketball team, use Kinesio taping with their players to treat injuries and enhance performance.
It seems that everywhere you look competitive athletes can be seen wearing colorful pieces of tape on a shoulder or elbows or knees, even the Olympics. But for all the college and pro players using the tape, there are many more “regular folks” who have discovered just how useful Kinesio taping is to them.
